So goes the two-in-one feature
at eight tonight in the University
Events Building as the Purdue
Boilermakers take on the Michigan
Wolverines in what promises to be
a highscoring chaotic affair.
The scouting report on Purdue
is that every one runs.
Mount is the key to the offense,
with a 30.5 average. "Mount can
shoot from every position with
great -accuracy," commented as-
sistant coach John Orr. He also

him leading the fast break, Mich-
igan's only hope appears to be
stopping the Purdue forwards and

least one notable disadvantage.
Plus and Minus
The plusses are the experience
they have gained in the 20 games
they have already played this year
and a fine 6'3" forward named
Harold Lowe.
On the minus side of the ledger
is the fact that the Rockets have
fizzled, winning only nine of their
starts while dropping eleven.
Add to this a decided height ad-
vantage for the Wolverines and
the possibility of a third straight
Michigan victory looks more than
just possible.
"We'll go with the same start-
ing lineup we used in our last
game," reports Pomey. "We hope
to play everybody, but that will
depend a lot on how the game
goes."
For Michigan
That means that Rod Ford,
Mike Rafferty, and Tom Lund-
stedt will be starting up front for
the Wolverines. Ford will take the!

They will be matched with Rex
Emerick and Dan Fife in the

Michigan State after putting in
a fine performance as a substitute
against the Buckeyes.

Ohio State fired a torrid 63 per
